Since a conversation didn’t work I would send them a handwritten letter on nice stationery. The unusualness of this will get their attention. Maybe something like this:

Dear Stephanie,

I am sooo excited for you! You are getting to marry the man of your dreams. I am deeply touched that you would ask me to be your maid of honor. That is quite an honor! I would so love love love to agree but I am afraid I will let you down. I am moving across the country to go to school and with mom and dad moving away too I see no way I can afford to come to your wedding let alone play such an important role.

 A maid of honor should be there helping with all the planning and preparation. She should be the person you can depend on for anything. I so wish I could be that for you but circumstances won’t allow that.  I want you to have the best wedding possible. You deserve a huge bridal shower and there is no way I could be here to give you that. As much as this saddens me, I care to much about you to commit to something I don’t think I can live up to. I have to decline. I want you to choose someone who can be there with you through everything.

I would love to hear all the details though. You are still my dear friend and I don’t want us to ever lose touch. If there is any way possible you know I would love to attend your wedding.

Love,

Sara
